The Summer Gas War

Wait, I thought this stuff only happened every New Year’s?  Though the heating of homes won’t be an issue in June/July, you know how the Europeans are about gas-fired kitchens…  From Reuters:

“Gazprom will only supply the gas which has been prepaid. Without the gas pumped into storage Ukraine will simply not survive and will be forced to take gas destined for transit,” Putin told a news conference in Helsinki.

“This may lead to a stoppage of gas transit to Europe in the end of June or start of July,” Putin said.
